MAISON LE MINOR
The LE MINOR workshops of Pont L'Abbé, founded in 1936 by Marie-Anne LE MINOR, dressed regional dolls and embroidered by hand table linens, banners for religious processions, tapestries, curtains, traditional costumes, etc.
Remaining faithful to the mission of the LE MINOR company, Gildas LE MINOR, grandson of the founder, today manages the LE MINOR workshop, perpetuating its savoir-faire and continuing its tradition, thanks to the talents of designers attached to Brittany, such as Robert CLEVIER, Nelly RODI, Gwen LE GAC, Patrice CUDENNEC.
From this collaborative effort are born collections of embroidered and printed table linens which marry highest quality materials and the knowledge of fine handwork.
In a word, Gildas LE MINOR administers this company of Pont L'Abbé with the goal to sell its regional identity outside of Brittany as well as producing for the Breton products with graphics inspired by their own heritage.
We are artisans! We work with artists and designers to create new patterns and products. Our embroidered items are made in our workshop in Pont L'Abbé, and for printed articles, we work with French businesses known for their reliability and their quality manufacturing. Our plastic coated fabrics receive a treatment that is three layers of resin acrylic, which makes them waterproof and stain-resistant. This fabric is machine-washable in warm water and it can be ironed from the back. The coating is made without solvents and without environmentally unsafe products. The manufacture time for personalized items is noted in the product listings.
SECURITY OF YOUR TRANSACTION

Even more important, credit card numbers are not stocked on the computer, either by our server or in our offices. We print your order as it arrives from our server, and we delete it from our computers. If, however, you would rather not transmit your credit card number via the Internet, you may fax us at 33.(0)184.108.40.206.30. Payment by check is also an option which you may select when you are checking out; we will contact you with more information about this form of payment.
Prices are posted in euros. The exchange rate fluctuates daily; if you pay with a dollar-based or other currency-based credit card, you will be charged the exchange rate at the moment that the charge is posted. You can check the current exchange rate at this web site.
SHIPPING & DELIVERY
Your order is normally shipped Colissimo Suivi in France and Colissimo International to other countries. If we think that a different mail option would serve you better, we will let you know. Delivery times vary according to the region and the time of year. We’d like to think that all mail systems are as efficient as the French postal service, but they aren’t always. Please notify us if a package has not arrived within the expected shipping time; we will put a tracer on it. You are most welcome to ask for a price quote including shipping.
PRICES, TAXES, & CUSTOMS
In France, prices are listed with the Value Added Tax included. However, orders shipped outside of the European Community are not subject to the Value Added Tax. We give you the tax information with the product listing; the site calculates the total without the tax. Customs duties and other local taxes, if any, are the responsibility of the recipient of the order.
Should a shipment arrive damaged, please obtain a signature from your local post office on the transport papers and contact us (use our Contact Page) for information about how to proceed.
YOUR DATA & PRIVACY
We do not rent, sell, or lend our list of customers to other businesses or organizations of any kind. We do keep our own mailing list to update our customers and friends about what is new and interesting in our boutique and other partner sites. If you would rather not be on our mailing list, please let us know. We have registered the SARL LE MINOR with the Commission Nationale pour l'Informatique et les Libertés (CNIL) with respect to our treatment of all information and data about our clients (Declaration N° 1609338v0).
